    any time plan? we are presently deciding which project management to use and do like Wrike but the missing communication level on Projects and on Groups is a real deal looser over Asana or Teamwork Projects

    We already have multiple ways of communicating with clients; please let us have all our communications in one place. Texting is more common than email. Comments are like email - they take too long. Chat is like texting. We are going to use chat, but if we use it outside of Wrike, it will be just another place where communication is not recorded where it belongs - with the project.

    Dear Wrike,

    97 votes here and still no status update. Can we please get some information regarding the possibility of a chat feature in Wrike? 

    Thank you!

    This feature would be great! 

    Our team is currently using Slack Messanger and while it is great, it is just another program to have open. 

    We use Wrike, Slack, Outlook (for client and vendor communication) and other programs for our company as well. It would be great to eliminate slack and roll the chat right into Wrike!.

    I concur, chat is a big missing link for Wrike, if trying to have Wrike bypass email. If I have some random but important information to send someone in the team or to the team, it's a statement, not a task... Bitrix24 have a great chat feature. It seems to me that Wrike deliberately ignore the chat function, as it seems counter to their belief of organised, channeled information. But not everything fits into a tidy box, which is why open chat helps fill the gaps between task information.

    I don't want to create a task to merely tell someone about an idea for something that hasn't been established as any form of project. Sometimes, as a culture, you don't want to make everything seem a task for someone.  Sometimes, it's just some news I want to share, or volunteered feedback that is wanted on an idea – I don't want to make that a "task" to discuss. Perhaps saving the thread into a project, folder or task could be an option, if it developed.

    @all Hi, sorry for being late with an update, I've added the status "Backburner" for now after checking with our Product team - not on the roadmap at the moment. We'll continue checking for updates, please keep adding your use-cases and voting.

    Hi, is there a timeline for when the instant chat will be brought into Wrike, it's one tool that is really needed.

    I keep reading about slack integrating, but can you create a message board or chat the remains open for a whole team? A bit like WhatsApp?

    This suggestion is not on the roadmap and there are no immediate plans for developing it. At the same time, the Product team is looking at some possible enhancements regarding communication, like comment threads etc. I'll let you know when I know more. 

    Thanks for your support here, I'm passing all your feedback to the team.

    Lisa can you let us know about the comment threads feature and likely release date? Also... is there a rationale from Wrike as to why it's not developing an instant chat (Slack-like) functionality so we can see which of our team are online and at their desk, and send them quick informal messages that are not (that is, do not have to be) within a task, project or folder? Wrike is really missing the boat on this front because Wrike claims to be a collaborative task and project management system, yet it does not provide team chat? This is a request over here too: https://help.wrike.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115003753985--Status-Not-planned-Chat-functionality

    Hi again everyone! The status of this suggestion remains the same for now. As for overall communication enhancements, I don't have any details as this is also not in the short-term roadmap - I'll make sure to let you know about this as soon as I can!

    Hi! I totally agree that a chat is a must-have. I'm surprised Wrike doesn't already have it. It would be extremely helpful if it could be prioritized and get implemented!
